Teacher Certification Internships

In recent internships, students have designed nature trails on local conservation land with fourth graders; conducted poetry recitals with middle school children; taught students to make iMovies about regional geography; mapped cemeteries with children to deepen their understanding of local history; and coordinated a Wild Animals That Nobody Likes production to teach writing and celebrate Halloween.

Internships are available in a variety of public, independent elementary schools, nature centers, and early childhood learning centers:

  • Rural and Urban Schools
  • Community-Based Education
  • Nature Centers
  • Early Childhood Centers

The lists below are just a sampling of some of the dynamic settings that past students have had internships. Students have interned in schools and education centers across the United States and in other countries as well.
